Syria and the United Nations
While the conflict in Syria rages on, our students have been trying to find their own solution to the violence. This simple, but powerful project, has three steps:
- students learn how to ask good questions about what’s happening in Syria and why;
- then the learn about the United Nations and put this into practice in a UN debate to try to find a way out of the conflict;
- finally they will write to William Hague MP, to urge him to do whatever they think is the best way forward.
We are doing this project with our Year 7s (11-12 year old), and despite their age, they have shown a level of understanding and compassion some members of the UN seem to be lacking.
Here are the resources we created for this project, which you’re very welcome to use or adapt:
